Windows 10 is the latest OS coming out from Microsoft. After the not so successful OS in Windows 8 and 8.1, Microsoft is having their hopes high on Windows 10 and they seem to have listened to user feedback, if beta releases are something to go by with.
According to Microsoft, Windows 10 will become generally available for public use on July 29, 2015.
During the first year of its availability, upgrade licenses for Windows 10 will be available at no charge to those who own a genuine copy of an eligible edition of Windows 7 (with Service Pack 1 Update installed) or Windows 8.1
You might have seen a Window icon in your computer taskbar recently. On June 1, 2015, Microsoft began to push a notification program to Windows 7 and 8.1 devices that are deemed to be compatible with Windows 10 to inform users of the upcoming release and pre-register for an automatic download of Windows 10 upon its release
So what is this and how to get Windows 10? Below is the process
- Click on the small Windows icon found at the right end of the taskbar.
- Click “Reserve your free upgrade” in the app window, that opens up.
- Enter your email if you want a confirmation of this reservation.
- That’s it. You are all set.
You’ll get a notification after July 29, 2015, once Windows 10 is downloaded to your device. Install it right away or pick a time that’s good for you.
After it’s installed, you have Windows 10 for free on that device. Please keep in mind that it will be free for one year only and after that the prevailing rate for Windows 10 will apply
There’s no obligation and you can cancel your reservation at any time. Hope Microsoft will come good this time and Windows 10 will be a superb OS
